    I love the traditional Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols and have just listened to this year's service from Kings College on BBC 4. As always it was heartwarming and uplifting.

    I believe a new work was commissioned from Harrison Birtwistle this year and if it was the piece I think it was (I didn't have a programme), WOW! Completely without sentimentality, of course, and I doubt many choirs (church or otherwise) will get near it.

    Did anyone else tune in?

    Was that the same broadcast shown on BBC TV ?

    I thought the O Holy Night was outstanding, don't usually hear 3 verses either
